Forget to defrost your fish in time for dinner? Time to clear out the freezer? Racing through the day wondering how you’re going to find time to make dinner?
Relax. We’ve got you covered with these tasty and time-saving recipes that’ll take your frozen seafood meals from freezer to table in no time flat.
Seafood is flash-frozen which makes it the perfect protein to keep stocked in your freezer. When properly stored, it can last in your freezer up to 6 months AND you can cook it from frozen! That’s awesome news for busy parents because you can cook as much or as little heart-healthy seafood as you want any time.
Whether your preference is busting out the Instant Pot, firing up the skillet or serving up dinner on a sheet pan, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite seafood recipes you can whip up right from the freezer. Now let’s get cookin’!
